Band Wit

Naw, um notta New Yawker tryin' to say "band width." 

The was the featured band at yesterday afternoon's jazz club.  They are so classy that they put out a program (rarely done here.)  The back page spells out their Mission Statement which follows.

Correcting Composer Errors.  While the band's primary task is to entertain, it simultaneously makes a concerted effort to correct any errors made in the composition of the various songs played.  As a result, you hear the songs played as they should have been written in the first place.

Equal Opportunity Band.  The Royale Garden Jazz Band does not discriminate in the selection of its musicians on the basis of race, creed, color, sex, political affiliation or the lack of musical ability.

On a more personal note, they whaled hell out of "Back Home Again in Indiana."
